A Walk in the Rio Grande Valley State Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

The Rio Grande Valley State Park winds through the city of Albuquerque along the Rio Grande.  The park's 4000+ acres features a cottonwood forest along the river and a 16 mile paved pedestrian and bicycle trail.  The trees tower over hikers on this warm spring day.








Notwithstanding the severe drought in the area (see this link for the current official U.S. Drought Monitor), the river itself was full of water, compliments of spring runoff from the mountains to the north and controlled and managed releases.

A very pleasant and peaceful place for a nice flat walk.


Instead of cutting down these large dead trees near an automobile parking access area, some were turned into sculptures.
